Wow, this month is going so fast! I can't believe I photographed today my latest Me Made May outfit! So that means, it's time for another round up:
Me made slacks and cardigan. This was my first cardigan I ever knitted. And it's probably the one I wear most.
The skirt and cardigan are made by me. When it comes to knitting I like stranded knitting the most.
Another oldie. This skirt I made quite some time ago. It's a basic gathered skirt, I still like the fabric and wear it alot during spring and summer.
The jumper and skirt are made by me. I'm more a cardigan person then a jumper/pullover person. But I definitely should knit more jumpers.
I love big circle skirts, they are so classy and timeless. This one I made about 3 years ago during a sewing weekend.
My first sewn Lutterloh dress from a late 30s pattern book
This is my favourite dress I ever made and is self drafted based on a late 30/ early 40s Lutterloh pattern. The dress was one of the more complicated patterns I had drafted.
My final Me Made May Outfit. This is a self drafted 50s inspired dress.
I discovered that I still like wearing my old pieces a lot. That although I spent tons and tons of time making a garment I still wear it years after i made it :) That means it is totally worth the effort!
As you can see, I don't stick to one era or one style. I like to play around and try different things. I'm not a vintage purist, I like to mix modern with vintage. Sometimes I like to try to be as authentic as possible and other times I just like to wear my sneakers with a 40s dress or slacks.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my me made outfits :)
